“East-Meets-West Side Story” might have made a clunkier but more interesting title for “Make Your Move,” a slick, disposable soap opera about a poor white boy and a spirited Korean girl who fall in love despite hailing from rival corners of Brooklyn’s club scene. Wringing yet another variation on the boy-hoofer-meets-girl-hoofer formula that fueled his screenplays for “Save the Last Dance” and “Step Up,” writer-director Duane Adler weaves an overly tangled web of resentment, betrayal and thuggish violence around his attractive two leads (“Dancing With the Stars” champ Derek Hough and pop star BoA), both of whom display almost enough fancy footwork to overcome the cliches they’ve been saddled with. Theatrical biz will be limited, but this amiable time-filler could have ancillary legs, particularly among the Asian-American audiences being targeted.

There’s a scene in the premiere of Intelligence that tells you everything you need to know about the show. The evil Chinese guy is trying to intimidate the lovable scientist guy. “Have you ever seen a Chinese M99 Sniper Rifle?” says the villain — played by Will Yun Lee, who CBS clearly has on-call after his similar turn on Hawaii Five-o. “This is the finest weapon in the world. Pinpoint accuracy.”
You’re ready for a speech, something about how the Sniper Rifle is a metaphor for how the villain’s operation is a perfectly-run system guaranteed to stop whatever »
